Dark garnet color. Spicy aromas and flavors of fruitcake, tea with milk and sugar, cedar smoke, plum, jerk spices, and raisin swirl bread with a slightly chewy, vibrant, bittersweet medium body and a polished, captivating, medium-length finish with notes of grapefruit oil and caramelized banana finish. A rich and fruity vermouth with a very balanced bitter character.

Vermouth is an aromatized, fortified wine flavored with certain spices and herbs, including tree barks, seeds and flowers.

Historically there were two main vermouth styles, a sweet Italian vermouth and a drier, lighter French vermouth. Today many styles of dry and sweet, red and white vermouths are made in many regions of the world. More and more diversity in style is seen with the success of new-world, craft vermouths entering the market. Enjoy these wines on the rocks, with soda, or in your favorite classic cocktails like a Manhattan, Martini, or Negroni.
